    A new release is coming, help up with the #translations

    Timothée Jaussoin – pubsub.movim.eu / Movim – Monday, 19 February - 21:54 - Monday, 19 February - 21:55

The next #Movim version is coming soon, lots of nice improvements have been added since the Christmas #release, Movim 0.13 - Coggia.

Several new features were added those past few weeks like a picture picker when URL that contains several pictures are shared, a spoiler on NSFW content in the news feed, improvements in the video-conferencing feature but also code cleanup and stability improvements. A more detailled article will follow the new release, as usual :)

But before packing everything up, we need your help! We would like you to help us translating Movim in your language to make it available to everyone. You can join us on the Transifex platform (you can login using your Github account as well) and start translating directly from your browser.

Thanks to all the exisiting translators Movim is now available in close than 30 languages. Let's see if we can fully translate the project in even more than that! Some languages like the Dutch, the Russian or the Norwegian are only missing a few dozen sentences to reach the goal :)

Lets bring Movim to the maximum of people for 2018!

    Movim 0.12.1

    Timothée Jaussoin – pubsub.movim.eu / Movim – Thursday, 16 November - 22:26 - Sunday, 10 December - 13:26

Movim 0.12.1 is a minor #release that follows Movim 0.12 – Lovejoy released a few weeks ago.

It mostly includes bug fixes and code #cleanup but also comes with a #redesign of the Community page.

The new Community page look

In parallel some work has already been done for the upcoming version, 0.13. All the internal inter-process communications (IPC) will soon be handled by the ZeroMQ library to fluidify the handling of thoses messages and make the UI more snappy.

    Hi, thanks for all the work you're providing. I have 2 or 3 issues with Movim that I would like to submit (like News feed not being refreshed automatically and missing new posts by contacts), what is the best channel for doing that?

    Movim 0.12 – Lovejoy

    Timothée Jaussoin – pubsub.movim.eu / Movim – Thursday, 19 October, 2017 - 20:18 - Monday, 23 October - 20:41

With #Lovejoy, #Movim is now #easier than before. Let's discover all the new #features bundled in this awesome #release.

A new way to explore your contacts and Communities

The Movim Contacts page has been entirely redesigned. It now gives you a direct access to your friend's publications and general information. The sidebar also allows you to discover more new publications and nice people.

The Community page, introduced in the 0.11 version, has also been reorganized and now allows you to see what is happening on your #pod at a glance.

Publish in a simple click

You want to quickly send a picture to your friends? Share a feeling or a thought? The new Quick Publish widget allows you to do that easily.

If you still want to do more advanced publications with formatting, you can press the plus button to access a full featured editor.

Movim also automatically saves the draft of your publications so you can get back to your publication later.

Organize and explore the publications

Tagging articles in Movim has been greatly simplified. By simply putting #hashtags you can categorize your publications. Now you can also explore public articles having similar tags.

NSFW content

To protect the children browsing the articles we also added an automatic filter on adult content (enabled by default). When publishing "Not Safe For Work" content you can categorize the articles as so by adding the NSFW tag to it.

If you want to have access to those content, you can enable them in the configuration.

New look for the publications

Lovejoy also comes with a new design for the articles cards. The embedded links are better integrated and you can now directly like an article while browsing!

The redesign also simplifies the browsing and navigation on mobile devices.

Movim ❤️ your mobile

The UI of Movim has been redesigned for mobile devices.

A new menu allows you to quickly switch between the four main pages. You can access the full menu by dragging the left side of your phone to the right.

Chat and Chatrooms, new features and redesign

A lot of love has been put in the chatroom features of Movim. They now have the same look and feel as the single chat ones. You can also now embed pictures in the discussions by uploading them or pasting links directly and you can auto-complete the nicknames by pressing Tab when writing a message in the chatrooms.

Since Lovejoy you can start a private discussion with a chatroom member in one click and invite your contacts to join the chat-room by sending them a message, or an invite link.

Thanks to the new autojoin feature, you can ask Movim to automatically join some of your favorite chatrooms when you log in.

Chat markers

Movim now implements the recent XMPP standard called Chat Markers, this allows you to know if a contact has seen your messages. This feature is also fully compatible with clients like Conversations or Dino.

Stickers!

Say hello to Miho, the new mascot of the Movim project. A new sticker pack created by Hey-Xander is available on Movim.

History

With the support of the XMPP standard Message Archive Management you can now resynchronize your history when logging back to Movim, for your private discussions but also in the chatrooms. Never loose any messages anymore between your devices!

…and also

Under the hood we continue to fix many issues, optimize and refactorize the Movim sourcecode to keep the Core engine clean and secure. This is also made possible by a continuous feedback from our community, via our official chat-room and our Github Page.

As members of our community become more and more involved, new pods have been opened in Sweden, Japan, Germany and Russia. Thanks to the maintainers!

Migration of our official XMPP server to ejabberd

One of the biggest tasks of those past months has also been to migrate our official server from the deprecated Metronome server to ejabberd. This migration contains more than 11 thousands accounts, thousands of articles, messages and relations.

Thanks to the ProcessOne team and especially Christophe Romain, Evgeny Khramtsov and Holger Weiß we greatly improved the script to migrate the data from one server to another and several features used by Movim after the migration.

ejabberd is now officially recommended by the Movim team. To make Movim fit perfectly with your server, please follow our ejabberd configuration page on our Wiki.

We are now close to having 300 simultaneously connected users on our official pods :)

Help us!

For 9 years now, the Movim team and community is working freely to develop the platform and the related projects. We are also hosting the official pods to allow our users to enjoy Movim daily.

To continue to maintain and expand our infrastructure we are looking for your help. You can contribute by doing a one time donation on our Paypal account or on our official Patreon.

You can also help us by writing feedbacks about your experience with Movim, translate the project or help us debugging and improving the platform :)

You can find all the information on our official website.

That’s all folks!

ejabberd 17.09 is the first version of #ejabberd recommended for the upcoming #Movim 0.12 #release. We worked closely with the ProcessOne team, especially on the #Pubsub implementation, to improve the integration between Movim and ejabberd. Thanks to them!

  • Quelques nouvelles concernant Movim

    Timothée Jaussoin – Wednesday, 8 March, 2017 - 22:47

Je n'ai pas donné beaucoup de nouvelles ces dernières semaines, en particulier concernant le projet Movim. J'ai en effet été pas mal occupé, notamment par un déménagement et des démarches administratives.

Ne vous en faites pas, après cette petite pause, je me remet progressivement au travail. En particulier pour préparer la prochaine release, Movim 0.11. Celle-ci à déjà été repoussée de quelques semaines à cause d'un sérieux bug de gestion des cookies qui s'est soldé par une profonde refonte du système de session au sein du projet.

Néanmoins le code ne devrait plus trop évoluer ces prochaines semaines, vous avez donc entre les mains une version proche de la 0.11 finale.

Des travaux de maintenance et de mises à jour sur les serveurs du projet m'ont également occupés ces derniers temps. Je prépare, entre autres, une migration des deux serveurs XMPP movim.eu et jappix.com de Metronome à ejabberd (jappix.com en priorité). Ce projet devrait encore prendre quelques mois puisque des adaptations doivent êtes faites sur les outils de migration entre ces deux serveurs.

Si vous avez des questions, n'hésitez pas à poster un commentaire ou venir en discuter sur le salon officiel.
